YMCA Cork was established in 1886 and ever since has sought to provide relevant services and programmes to young people. These programmes are delivered in an integrated way that always puts the young person at the centre of every activity.
Among the programmes which YMCA Cork offers are a Youth Information service with a strong emphasis on collaborative work with young people to address issues affecting them; a Youth Counselling service for one on one support, and a Youth Support service aimed at helping those young people who are homeless or are considered to be at risk of being homeless.
For the past 25 years YMCA Cork has been a provider of pre-vocational training with STEP and Elevate, both in its City Centre premises. In more recent years, YMCA Cork has developed a number of youth led Youth Spaces projects, many of which have a strong music and performing arts focus. Visit website ›
